We booked a twin room, and paid extra to take our dogs. When we got there, a member of staff, a blonde woman, was very ignorant, and spoke to myself and friend like we were something she had stepped in. When we brought the dogs in, she then started to shout at us say "this is not a dog friendly... More

Stayed on a Friday evening so we could enjoy the UB40 concert. There was a little bit of confusion when we arrived but Alison was a pleasure , taking time to show us to our rooms, how to get in if we came in late at night and the best way to get to the concert. We had rooms on... More

I have just returned from an impromptu stay at the ivy house. The staff were all very helpful, efficient and friendly. They went out of their way to accommodate both me and my cycle. The room on the top floor was immaculate, fantastic views of the bay. The bed was very comfortable. The inclusive breakfast was very tasty and filling.... More

Have eaten here before when visiting Scarborough and have enjoyed the food. Today we were very disappointed. Ordered the fish chips and peas at £9.95 expecting great food. The fish was dry and over cooked. It came with a small portion of mushy peas and an even smaller portion of chips. The chips were delicious and crispy but I counted... More

The staff were very friendly and appologised on arrival about the pricing confusion down to booking.com. The family room wasnt to big but it was enough room for the four of us. The room encluding en-suite were very stylish. The whole hotel was modern and had good decor. The breakfast was a basic menu but all very tasty. Overall the... More

On visiting Scarborough for the day we thought we would try somewhere for lunch, we had heard good reviews from some last year who visited so expectations were high. On arrival we were swiftly shown a table and a waitress was over very quick, she took our order for drinks and also food, nothing special just traditional fish and chips,... More

We have just spent two nights at the ivy house. The first night in the captain barbossa suite which was lovely. It had a huge four poster bed and a lovely roll top bath. The hotel is right on the sea front so the seagulls are a little noisy but you can't hear anything from the cafe which is below.... More

Stayed here one night recently in the family room with a mezzanine in it. Great size room but unfortunately not overlooking the sea which was a disappointment. Fantastic location right in the middle of everything so all walkable. However, no parking onsite but there is a car park 200 yards away for Long Term Parking at Quay Street - £6.50... More

I go to Scarborough several times a year but often book a cottage near Cayton. This time as we were only going for the night we thought we would book something on the front. The Ivy House is easily recognisable if you have been to Scarborough, a beautiful white ivy covered building literally across the road from the harbour. I... More
